NEWS OF THE WEIRD

Stuck with Jury Duty

Posted:

A man with admittedly limited English skills went to a Springfield, Mass., courthouse in December to address a traffic ticket, but somehow wound up on a jury trying Donald Campbell on two counts of assault. Officials said the man just got in the wrong line and followed jurors to a room; the real sixth juror mistakenly went to another room. The jury, including the accidental juror, found Campbell guilty. He got a new trial when the mistake was discovered.
